Abstract: The most commonly used potentials for van der Waals interactions are the Exponential-6 and the Lennard-Jones (12-6) potential. In this paper a correlation between them is described. The Morse function, which is normally applied for quantifying 2-body interactions, has been adopted in one software. This paper deals with the validity of the Morse function for non-bonded interactions by means of obtaining a relationship between the Morse and the Lennard-Jones (12-6) potential functions. An approximate and an exact mathematical relationship is demonstrated to exist between these two potentials.
